Retail Personal Banker Interview

Retail Personal Banker

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Fifth Third in February 2013.

Interview Details The process starts with a recruiter who will either like or dislike the person. Then they'll meet with the manager and district manager for a face to face interview. Sometimes you will need to go through a panel interview, this depends on the availability of district managers and financial center managers. If they have available time you will go to the panel interview first, then meet with the specific financial center manager and district manager for a more intimate interview.

Interview Question – Most questions are standard HR directed questions. like "Tell me about a group project you were a part of, what was your roll in the project? How did you handle a teammate that wasn't contributing as much as they should have"

The most unexpected question (if you would call it a questions) was the classic. "sell me this pen"

Negotiation Details – I was an internal hire so they would not negotiate with me, however, the offer was so low that i almost declined the position. My manager promised me an out of cycle raise if my production warrants it after 6 months. Nothing was ever written down it was just a promise made. I accepted the offer on that condition, hit my numbers and and 6 months to the day of my hire an out of cycle raise was given to me. One of the many reasons I respect the ethical nature of 5/3

Employee Relations Specialist Interview

Employee Relations Specialist

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Fifth Third in May 2014.

Interview Details I enjoyed meeting with each HR person. I interviewed with 3 individuals and it went very well however the last thing I was told was that I needed to meet with one last person. They never contacted me after that. I don't mind not getting the job but it is very rude and unprofessional to not inform someone after the number of times I traveled to interview with them. I didn't expect this from such a large company. It just shows me how unprofessional they are.

Interview Question – It was easy.   Answer Question

I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Fifth Third in September 2010.

Interview Details It depends on the position. My interviews have usually been with a couple of managers after the first interview is passed. They have a form with questions to ask. Usually pretty comfortable. Just be yourself and answer the best of your abilities. The bank is very team oriented and being engaged with your surroundings is important.

Interview Question – I don't recall and unexpected or difficult questions.   Answer Question

Customer Service Representative Interview

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Fifth Third in April 2014.

Interview Details I think it was just too difficult. To come up with examples for five years experience. This does not give a good feel for who the person truly is.

Interview Question – They were all difficult. Asking for specific examples on a certain aspect of the job. There is no time to think and if you take too long then how does that look.   View Answer
